How to Switch Credit Card Processing Providers.

Let’s face it, the majority customers these days pay with credit card. They want their cash back rewards. Offering credit card processing as a business owner is definitely worthwhile because of the number of people wanting to use their credit card for just about every purchase.

One question that plagues business owners is- How do I go about switching my credit card processing provider in order to go with another for better rates, faster service, etc? Switching providers is easier than you think.

The first step is to find the right merchant accounts so that you know who you are going to switch to. Part of this step is reaching out to merchant providers. This is where we come in. Here at MD Bookkeeping, we know your time is valuable. So, we help you find a provider that can help you. This saves you time and money. You don’t have to spend hours or days looking. We’ve found some of the best providers out there and can get you personalized quotes for your business.

The second step is once you decide you like one of the quotes, then we’ll help connect you to the person in charge of setting up your account and getting your equipment set up and running. That person will go over the installation process and make the transition easy. While you are setting up your new account, you’ll want to reach out to your old provider and tell them that you are canceling their services. After all, a penny saved is a penny earned.

The old company may send out a technician to uninstall the old equipment that is in your place of business. It is important to set it up so that the new equipment is ready to go at the time the old equipment is removed. The new company should only take an hour or two to get you up and running.

Your new credit card processing company will have things in place so that your new credit card machines will be able to process payments and other transactions. Having a better provider for your credit card processing will help you lower costs and make things quicker and easier for your business in general when you offer credit card processing for your customers.
